    Years overdue, photo identification will be required the next time Wisconsin voters go to the polls, for the spring elections in 2016. The U.S. Supreme Court finally settling that issue was good news, but the fight over ballot security will never be over. Congressman Mark Pocan (D-Pluto) greeted the Court’s action with a renewed call for his constitutional amendment guaranteeing a right to vote ostensibly meaningless, the proposal’s sinister nature lies in its open-ended guarantee, setting the stage to argue that there is no such thing as a reasonable condition to be imposed on exercising the franchise. His co-author Rep....

    Mr. Bush, a former Florida governor and likely presidential candidate, was born in Texas and hails from one of America’s most prominent political dynasties. But on at least one occasion, it appears he got carried away with his appeal to Spanish-speaking voters and claimed he actually was Hispanic. In a 2009 voter-registration application, obtained from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department, Mr. Bush marked Hispanic in the field labeled “race/ethnicity.” A Bush spokeswoman could offer no explanation for the characterization.

    Great news for those interested in election integrity and common sense reforms like voter ID: the Supreme Court today removed the final legal obstacle to implementing Wisconsin’s voter ID law. The Court refused to hear the American Civil Liberties Union’s appeal of a Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision that threw out the injunction issued against the state’s ID law by federal district court Judge Lynn Adelman. Adelman, a Clinton appointee and former Democratic state senator, had thumbed his nose at the Supreme Court, claiming that he did not have to follow the Court’s prior 2008 opinion in Crawford v....

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a challenge to Wisconsin's Republican-backed law requiring voters to present photo identification to cast a ballot, a measure Democrats contend is aimed at keeping their supporters from voting. The justices declined to hear an appeal filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, which challenged the law. The ACLU said it then filed an emergency motion with a federal appeals court to try to keep the law from taking effect immediately. Republican Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel said the law cannot be implemented for the state's April 7 election because absentee ballots are already...

    The Supreme Court on Monday turned down a challenge to Wisconsin’s voter ID law, which it had previously kept from going into effect before November’s elections. The court’s decision not to review a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the law was a victory for Gov. Scott Walker (R) and perhaps other states that have tightened voting procedures to require additional identification.

Jim Hoft calls this Ron Paul’s Checkpoint Charlie moment, but it’s really more like an apex of Paul’s paranoid band of libertarianism. In this exchange, Paul opposes building a border fence because he doesn’t believe it represents American values, which is a fair enough argument that one usually hears from Democrats. He then tips over into hilarity when he suggests that the US government might use it to stop Americans from fleeing to, er, Mexico:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO I immediately noted on...

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson says the states are “undermining the right to vote" by locking up people in for-profit prisons. Jackson joined House Democratic Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) at a press conference in Washington last Thursday where they introduced a constitutional amendment that would put elections under federal control to guarantee the right to vote to every American, including those in prison. "Most of these states now, they're using privatized jails for two purposes: one, to disenfranchise voters, because once you’ve been to jail it’s more difficult to vote. And two, it’s a profit-making industry. So...

No, but the idea is most definitely there. "I serve at the pleasure of the first African-American president of the United States of America," she said to a round of applause.

They were so friendly, in fact, that they even offered a service to voters, advertised by a sign on the wall: Voters, presumably those who would have difficulty walking into the polling station due to disability, could wait in their idling cars, honk their horns and have someone aid them in voting curbside.

Reporter John Fund has written three books on voter fraud and a recent survey by Old Dominion University indicates that there are more than a million registered voters who are not citizens, and who therefore are not legally entitled to vote. The most devastating account of voter fraud may be in the book "Injustice" by J. Christian Adams. He was...

    Something about the term "Common Sense Gun Control" has been bugging me for a while, and I think that I finally understand it now: If you oppose "Common Sense Gun Control", then you are irrational, since you obviously don't have any "common sense". Needless to say, the definition of the term "common sense" is in the eyes of the beholder. No doubt when the government of Australia pretty much rounded up the last of the privately owned guns, they also looked at that as "Common Sense Gun Control", since, without any other privately-owned guns, there was no need for the...

    Democrats never say they are committed to stopping voter fraud, merely that they're dedicated to "everyone" voting.

If you can't even verify your identity, validate and protect the authenticity of your vote, how are you a victim of anything other than your own ignorance and apathy?

The article, written by Jesse Richman and David Earnest, two Associate Professors at Old Dominion University, provides compelling evidence supporting the necessity of voter identification and more than this – supporting the necessity of verification of citizenship prior to granting voter registration.

The Texas legislature passed Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) into law in 2011 in a bid to curb voter fraud. It requires voters seeking to cast their ballots in person to present photo identification, such as a Texas driver's or gun license, a military ID or a passport according to votetexas.gov....

    Democrats want everyone to vote: old, young, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, citizen, non-citizen. Wait, what was that last one again? We’ll get to that. Voter-ID laws, passed by thirty states so far, are efforts by legislatures to ensure the integrity of votes. Being asked to show a photo ID can diminish several kinds of fraud, including impersonation, duplicate registrations in different jurisdictions, and voting by ineligible people including felons and non-citizens. The Democrats have made a number of arguments against voter-ID laws. They argue a) that the problem of voter impersonation or in-person voter fraud is nonexistent; b) that black...

    Liberal and conservative groups are mobilizing armies of poll watchers to battle over the enforcement of voter ID laws on Election Day. The Democratic Party has more to lose if turnout is low on Nov. 4. Liberals want to ensure that the young, black and Latino voters who form a key part of the party’s electoral base are not kept from the polls. Conservatives insist that they just want to uphold the integrity of the electoral process by making sure that all votes cast are legitimate. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has state directors stationed across the country for its...

    In recent arguments against states requiring voters to show a photo ID, the United Auto Workers Local 6000 has compared concerns about voter fraud to belief in the fictional Loch Ness monster and Yeti. The union wrote on its Facebook page that requiring a photo ID for voting is the goal of the “billionaire funded” American Legislative Exchange Council, and is intended to create obstacles for voters who might support a more “progressive” agenda. When its own members, however, want to exercise their freedoms under the new right-to-work law in Michigan to opt out of paying union dues as a...

    Voter Fraud: As early voting begins in the Land of Lincoln, President Obama casts his ballot and a Republican state senator voting for himself finds that his ballot was counted for his opponent. Eric Holder, call your office. The day after resigning as attorney General, Eric Holder told the Congressional Black Caucus that the voter ID laws he and his Justice Department opposed were answers to a problem that "doesn't exist." Yet when President Obama left the golf course Monday to vote early in his home state of Illinois, he was asked to present his ID before casting his ballot....

    June 9, 2014: For years, President Obama and black civil rights leaders have been telling the nation that voter ID laws are being pushed by racist Republicans who want to disenfranchise blacks. "The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act was passed in to law nearly five decades ago," Mr. Obama told a conference hosted by Al Sharpton earlier this year. Dismissing the notion that voter ID laws could have anything to do with ballot integrity, the president said that "the real voter fraud is people trying to...

    Controversial voter identification laws are not the primary reason minority voters are failing to cast their ballots, President Obama said in a radio interview airing Tuesday. "Most of these laws are not preventing the overwhelming majority of folks who don't vote from voting," Obama said during an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton. "Most people do have an ID. Most people do have a driver's license. Most people can get to the polls. It may not be as convenient, it may be a little more difficult." The Justice Department has challenged new voter identification laws in Texas and North Carolina. Those...

    Lots of folks think Democrats oppose voter ID laws because they want to cheat and such laws interfere with their plans. That’s an attractive explanation, but it ignores the far more complex architecture of voter ID opposition. Here’s the real reasons Democrats oppose voter ID. Understanding these three reasons will help you decode the whole narrative behind voter ID. 1. Opposition to Voter ID Is a Base-Mobilization Tool. Simply, Democrats and civil rights groups spend millions of dollars opposing voter ID because they are trying to scare minority voters into thinking that Jim Crow is back. If Jim Crow is...

    How much is too much of a burden when it comes to being an American? As Americans, we’re required to engage with our government at all levels, in all sorts of ways. Many of those ways create burdens, but are part of the deal when we live under the rule of law and decide who represents us in government. Our relationship with our government is a two-way street. Consider some of the pillars of civic duty – voting, jury duty, registering for Selective Service, participating in the Census, challenging a property tax assessment. All of these carry burdens on us...
